L.E.K. Summer Internship Application FAQ

I spotlighted three reasons why you’d get a lot out of spending a summer with us in my last post. Here, I’ve addressed common questions from undergrad and grad students about applying for L.E.K.’s summer internship program.

 

Q:  What’s the interview process like (number of rounds, etc.)?
A:  The interview process is two rounds at L.E.K. Round 1 consist of two interviews. Both interviews are a mix of case and fit questions. The case questions are used to gauge your quantitative, business logic and strategic acumen. Round 2 Associate candidates will find a second set of interviews that are similar to the first. Students at the Consultant/MBA level also have another round of interviews – and they must also prepare and deliver a case presentation as one of the case interviews.  

 

Q:  Where do the interviews take place? 
A:  Round 1 is performed on campus at the schools that we’ve identified in the applications deadlines question in this FAQ; we conduct interviews via phone with candidates from other schools. Round 2 interviews are usually held in the office where you are most interested in working.

 

Q:  How do I find out if you are coming to my campus?
A:  Check out our careers page for a listing of U.S. campus activities about our summer intern program.

 

Q:  What are the summer intern application deadlines in the U.S.? 
A:  See our application deadlines below for summer internships in Boston, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
